The mattress is the most
vital single component of a bed for comfort, particularly
if you choose a bedstead which is essentially a stylish base
to support the mattress and without a sprung base.
Modern technology has changed the mattress beyond recognition
from its earliest predecessors of only 20 years ago. Using
high tensile steel in springs, topped with layers of traditional
felt, wool, cotton and more modern fillings of foam, latex,
polyester padding, manufacturers can now combine all or some
of these materials to give you different 'feels' like never
before. Indeed the latest trends are towards no springs and
different density layers of high resilient foams and, or,
latex and polyester.
For simplicity I have grouped mattresses into 5 groups:-
1. Open Coil Springs
2. Pocket Sprung
3. Latex + Memory Foam
4. Combination of Memory Foam, Latex
+ open coil spring unit.
5. No Turn Mattresses
